STATEMENT
My art is a reflection of how I perceive the world around me and attempt to show a new and fresh perspective on the ordinary. It is the relationship between art and reality. I want to take what I love about traditional art and put it on its head. I strive to find a new angle to the old ways to give it a different feel and impact. I love portraiture and still life. But how do I make it new and engaging. I have a series I describe as "contemporary florals" made up of trash instead of flowers. Every detail in this world has the potential to be art, and reality can exist with the abstract. The unique delight is there, and I attempt to show it.
